Before they get too worked up over President Barack Obama’s budget for 2013, Republicans might want to take note of these two paragraphs from a press release issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer:
The budget contains $2.8 million in the Investigations Appropriation for the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP). The funding will further the harbor deepening pre-construction engineering and environmental analyses leading to a “Record of Decision,” which completes the Corps’ approval process.
(Last week, the expansion project also received $2.5 million in federal funding following the release of the Corps’ Headquarters work plan for fiscal year 2012 appropriations to the Army Civil Works program.)
